Looking forward to growing up is a universal experience for most children. After all, at the age of sixteen, most people are able to get their permit, then license. At eighteen, you can buy a lottery ticket and technically move out on your own. And by twenty-one, you can indulge in alcohol and get into any nightlife event.

However, once most people turn twenty-one, they realize that “adulting” is not all it’s cracked up to be. You have to deal with rent, or a mortgage, taxes, retirement plans, health insurance, and the list goes on and on.

So, what do most people do? They reminisce about childhood and what they miss most. And if you want to join the nostalgia party, a recent post on Reddit prompted tons of comments. There, people shared what they truly miss most about being a kid.
